So you’ve got your university degree. Nice work, that piece of paper shows you have skills, motivation, a willingness to learn and a helluva lot more besides. The next step is to enter the graduate jobs market. But as you’ve probably heard, that’s not always easy… it’s competitive out there. The good news is that we’re here to help.
Graduates who sign up for a recruitment agency like NST Graduate stand a much better chance of finding a job. And our candidates end up in positions that are amongst the highest paid in the UK, so they clear their student debt quicker.
Here are five reasons why working with us can put you on a fast track to better pay…
1. We understand what businesses are looking for
We work with sales and recruitment departments within industries such as SAAS, Fintech, Martech, IT, Tech Reselling and PR and Communications. Our clients are everything from start ups to scale-ups, through to global corporations. We spend time with each business and try to understand what they’re looking for in a prospective employee. Armed with this information, it’s easy for us to help find a job that matches your skills, interests and personality.
2. We know how the graduate jobs market works
Sometimes, when you’re hunting for graduate jobs, it can be confusing and emotionally draining. Job search fatigue is real and it’s easy to let negativity creep in when you start receiving knock backs.
We know how tough it is for graduates – we work in the industry every day! That experience means we can help our candidates retain a sense of perspective. Rejection isn’t the end of the world; quite the opposite in fact. It helps us hone our search to find the job that’s best suited to each candidate.
3. We help to set expectations
As a graduate, you’ve probably spent your entire life up to now in education. And so you may not feel particularly clued up as to what a job in sales or recruitment actually involves. Well, we can help to de-mystify things. We know exactly what our clients are looking for and the sort day-to-day tasks the successful candidate will need to fulfil within the organisation.
4. We can help you nail your application
With us in your corner, the graduate jobs application process is a breeze. First, we’ll help you get the all-important CV and cover letter on point. Next, we’ll run assessments to check where you need to brush up on your knowledge and skills. After that, you’ll be interviewed by our senior managers so that when the time comes, you’re ready to meet the client (who’ll hopefully turn out to be your new employer).
5. We’ll give you feedback
Of course, not every interview is successful. That’s to be expected. But often, candidates who don’t apply for graduate jobs through a recruitment agency won’t get feedback if their interview is unsuccessful. Clearly there’s a problem with that – they’re left wondering what went wrong and don’t know where they need to improve.
We always obtain feedback from the client and use it to figure out how you can smash your next application!
